Well if your feet are straight forward, that could be bad. At shoulder width they should be pointing out a bit. Where did you come up with that? Kenny Croxdale From Starting Strength. Although my meaning was kind of unclear; I meant to say that your leg width often dictates your foot angle, and tha...

Strange sensation

The other day I started a soft reset on squat (due to stalling). Since then I've been having a strange pain in my groin when doing squats. It usually occurs as a finish driving out of the hole, as I reach the top. It hurts right on the inside of my legs. My technique is the same as before. However, ...

Well if your feet are straight forward, that could be bad. At shoulder width they should be pointing out a bit. You might be up on your toes a little bit, or leaning too far forward. Or maybe you're not sitting back enough and using your glutes/hamstrings. It's hard to tell. If you could post a vide...

$150 a year at my university. Interestingly, the weight rooms at the schools where all my friends go is free. Plus my gym sucks. 50,000 students go to my school, yet there's ONE freaking power cage. Fortunately, it's almost always empty when I get there, but occasionally someone will be in there (so...

Please read the article, I can't hold your hand and walk you through things that have already been covered in this thread. Sorry.

You mean do an isolation exercise (like biceps curl) to failure that you already did earlier in the workout (that is, you would do biceps curl twice)? That's not necessary. I think what the article is saying is that you can just go to failure on your first time with an exercise like that.

And I'm not sure who made the marathon and bench press analogy, but that makes no sense, because they aren't even in the same field. A pushup/bench press/ then pushup analogy might make sense, pushups being endurance and bench press being strength, and then calling it a chest workout, just as a run...

CoreAlex. It sounds from one of your other posts that you're into MMA? There's a poster here, pdellorto who has been doing it for a long time, I think. You might want to private message him and see what he thinks. I don't know a lot about MMA, but it seems to have common physical requirements with b...

And for some reason, some of you don't consider it aerobic exercise. I don't think anyone here said that. First off, I can be jogging, throw in a sprint, and then still jog afterwards. What would you call it then? HIIT probably. Or Jogging/sprinting/jogging. If I bench pressed, ran a marathon, and ...

No, at least according to Kenny's post. You should only go to failure for the following exercises. 3. Machine pressing and pulling, chest isolation work, quadriceps isolation work, hamstrings isolation work, lower back isolation work, and abdominal work 4. Biceps isolation work, triceps isolation wo...

I don't get it. Are you mad that we're having a laugh at these two guys who KOed each other? We're not criticizing the sport in anyway. It's like a few years ago when Jason Seahorn was running an interception back for a touchdown and his pants fell down. Having some fun at his expense is in now way ...

Two quick things (without completely tearing it apart): 1. You said on your last set you can't always get all of your reps. Remember that the principle of progressive overload. I think you ought use weights that allow you to get all of your reps. Then the next workout add weight, and try and get all...

I vaguely remember a friend of mine telling me about an MMA fight where one fighter knocked the other out, but KOed himself or something when he hit his head on the mat immediately after, and they had to DQ the whole fight. I'm not sure how accurate that is, but funny if true.

I thought on an earlier thread we learned that you cannot "lengthen" your muscles (I think it was either Kenny or KPj that totally went off about it). So I'm curious, in your opinion as a trainer, how running exactly gives you a longer, leaner look, if it doesn't lengthen your muscles?
